A radio station run by Somalia's al-Shabab Islamist group has awarded weapons to children who won a Koran-reciting and general knowledge contest...... Andulus radio, based near Mogadishu, gave the group which won first prize in the Ramadan competition an AK-47 rifle and the equivalent of $700 (£450).... The second prize-winners received an AK-47 and $500, while the third prize was two hand grenades and $400..... Al-Shabab, linked to al-Qaeda, controls much of southern and central Somalia.

I guess this means that Somali children have more rights than New York City adults. We put cute red and orange tips on our toy guns, discourage the giving of toy guns to our children, and our sworn enemy gives away fully automatic assault rifles to their children. Hmmm. This may be significant.:cool:
